New media artists explore imaginary media, exposing the exaggerated expectations about the power of current technology, and demystifying the processes running withing the black boxes. Specator is invited to physically enter image space to explore what is happening on the Clipboard – the unreachable dimension where people keep words that are too complicated, receipt numbers and passwords, unfinished thoughts and unsent letters, possibly shameful memories, memes that dillutes personal reactions into pop-culture patterns, and secured images. Temporary things are saved on the Clipboard. Everything that waits for the right moment but appears in the most uncomfortable situations.
